We Land on The Moon (1969)

There were a number of coloring books that came out in 1969/1970 about the moonlanding. I like this one especially for its futuristic illustrations. Plus someone colored in one of the drawings very nicely.

Coloring books are a whole separate collecting area but I have a hard time resisting those that mix the non-fictional images in with the fiction. In some ways coloring books were the picture books for those children who didn't/wouldn't read. Your parents loved that you were occupied. And the "artist" got to really focus on an image and get it stuck in your head.
